Breadboards, pallet boxes and signs

I have been so bad about posting for a long time so thought I would pop in today and show you what
I have been up to.

I found patterns for these mini breadboards over at Craftberry Bush that were shared by Cami from at Tidbits
and just had to give them a try.

Who am I kidding? I actually traced the patters on an old hardwood board that we found recently while
cleaning out our church basement and hubby cut them out for me. To be honest, I could have done it,
but I only had one board that was perfect to use for this project and I didn't want to mess it up. haha!

We had FUN making these! Well, I know I did...I don't know that hubby would call it fun , but I think
he would. *smile*

The patterns are in different shapes and I just LOVE them! We will be making more when I find
some more hardwood to re-purpose.

I don't know about you , but I have been salivating over the olive buckets every since they hit the scene
a few years ago so I finally took the plunge and ordered one. Was I ever disappointed when it arrived!!

The pic showed a bucket with very little rust on it and this one is literally covered with rust.
NOT my taste at all.

I emailed them and told them how disappointed I was and that I was sure it was probably my fault
for not reading directions clearly. They replied and wanted pics. I figured that would be the end of it,
but I got up the next morning to a total refund in my email including shipping...and they don't want
me to send it back. I was impressed!!!

The hubs and I treated ourselves each to a little something when we received our tax refund and
this GRACE sign is what I chose. I LOVE IT!

We made these boxes out of pallets a few days ago also. I think they turned out pretty good for
the first try. I think I would use a nail gun next time instead of screws so they don't show as much.
Live and learn.

Last , but not least this is my latest sign. Love how it turned out as well, I have just been on a roll creating
and painting and I intend to keep it up so I can stay out of trouble. lol.

What have you made lately? I would love to hear about it.
